The properties of gaseous detonation waves when subjected to a compressible gaseous inert boundary are investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Properties of interest are the propagation velocity, the reaction length, the quenching conditions and the shape of the wave. The zeroth order analytical solution of the hydrodynamic equations involved, an assessment of several quenching criteria, a description of the experimental setup, and the experimental results were obtained. As a summary of this work, the abstract and the conclusions are presented. Author
